  • Op-ed: A bitter reconciliation

    Clashes in Cairo between pro and anti-Morsi protesters were violently crushed by police leaving seven dead and over 240 injured late Monday.

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – As I write this article on a tepid Ramadan night in Cairo, I cannot help but feel that Ramadan this year does not emanate any sense of peace and tranquility. I say this as I follow news of clashes in Cairo between pro-Morsi supporters, police and exasperated members of the local community where it has been reported that last night 7 people were killed, over 200 injured and more than 400 arrested. I can already hear the voices of those who were against the June 30 protests that led to the removal of Morsi, yelling…

    CAIRO: In an unprecedented scene of mass mobilization in front of the Ittihadiya Presidential Palace, tens of thousands of protesters gathered to chant in unison against Egypt’s first freely elected president as he barely completes one year in office. Spurred by a three-month old grassroots signature campaign, Tamarod, which demanded a withdrawal of confidence from President Morsi, ho hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, and holding early elections, Egyptians flooded squares all over the country, in what some say are protests that far exceeded their counterparts in 2011. Across the city in Tahrir Square, tens of thousands were making similar demands,…

    CAIRO – In a scene reminiscent of the 18 days of the January 2011 uprising, Tahrir Square, the epicenter of protests that ousted Egypt’s 30-year dictator Mubarak only two and a half years ago, has once more been transformed into a hotbed of protest action. Tens of thousands descended upon the iconic city center demanding the removal of President Morsi, whose single year in office has been fraught with consistent power and fuel crises, rising prices and unprecedented political polarization.

    Op-ed: The absurdity of ideology

    Screen grab in the vicinity of the Presidential Palace shows an Egypt that is literally splint in half as army erects concrete barriers to contain the violence between pro and anti-Morsi protesters.

    BY REHAM BARAKAT One of the most common phrases I’ve been hearing recently is “Egypt has plunged into chaos” followed by a nod by everybody around the table. Next comes the unanimous admission that “the country is now polarized,” substantiated by a statement that “the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters are pitted against everyone else.” Again everyone nods their head. The grand finale is “Mubarak was right when he said it is either me or chaos,” which is when the nodding of head actually stops and very bitter arguments ensue. There are those who agree with the fact that Mubarak…

    Op-ed: Egypt’s democratic dictator?

    Screen capture shows anti-Morsi protesters in Tahrir Square in a sit-in against the president's recent constitutional declaration.

    BY OMAR ASHOUR CAIRO Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first-ever elected civilian president, recently granted himself sweeping temporary powers in order, he claims, to attain the objectives of the revolution that overthrew Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorship. But the decrees incited strong opposition from many of the revolutionary forces that helped to overthrow Mubarak (as well as from forces loyal to him), with protests erupting anew in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Morsi has thus been put in the odd position of having to defend his decision against the protesters while simultaneously making common cause with them. “I share your dream of a constitution for all…
